Family Fun on The Algarve

With the temperatures already hitting 30, it’s the beginning of high season on the Algarve.

We’ve been keeping busy in the Real Algarve office as we make last minute arrangements and bookings for our guests whilst they settle in for their half term break across our resorts.

As many of our guests are families at this time of year– our concierge service, Algarve aunties has been in full swing with babysitting, nanny services and booking outings and excursions. Most popular this year have been trips to Zoo Marine to swim with the dolphins and see the shows, Segway rides around the Ria Formosa and lake, karting and the very latest craze – foot golf.

Watch this space next month for feedback from our guests and amazing photos of the children enjoying their experiences!
